Never to Return: Brighton College's Fallen 1914-18 Summary


Never to Return: Brighton College's Fallen 1914-18 by Max Usher

In the early summer of 1914, the headmaster of Brighton College, Canon W. R. Dawson, spoke to the school in chapel. He called on every boy present to stand ready to sacrifice his life in defence of his country. No shot had yet been fired in anger, Austria's Archduke still lived, few anticipated a European war, and yet Brighton's headmaster seemed to sense the approaching clouds of conflict. By November 1918, of the 280 boys in the Chapel that day, 149 of them lay dead, casualties of the Great War. Ten of them were still teenagers. This book presents mini biographies of the School's former students killed in the First World War and serves as a fitting tribute to their bravery and fortitude.
